A court in East Cape high court has found a 31-year-old man guilty of killing his estranged wife in 2019.

According to reports gathered, the incident happened in East London in 2019.

The couple, Carl Joe Abrahams and his wife Angelique Clarke-Abrahams aged 25 were said to have separated before he killed her.

Carl was also found guilty of breaching the conditions of an interim protection order.

“Their marriage was characterised by domestic violence and shortly before her death, in August 2019, Angelique obtained an interim protection order against Abrahams,” said Anelisa Ngcakani, NPA Eastern Cape spokesperson.

During the morning of August 29, 2019, Abrahams arrived at Angelique’s flat accompanied by a young child. Abrahams instructed the child to hide behind a cupboard and pushed Angelique onto a couch, said Ngcakani.

“The child ran out and screamed for help from the neighbours who threatened to call the police. The landlady contacted the police and the ambulance services and Angelique was taken to the hospital but never regained consciousness and died a few days later.

“Post-mortem results revealed that she died from a brain injury due to strangulation,” said Ngcakani.

The case was postponed to December 20 for sentencing.
